The Palliative Care Partnership

Ask how palliative care can benefit your patients.

In patients with a terminal diagnosis or complex co-morbidity, the physician-patient relationship can often become strained. Frequent hospital admissions, unmanageable pain and nausea, ravaging symptoms, and uncontrollable fear or distress are common.     

In greater than 90 percent of such cases, a palliative specialist can help the primary care physician get pain and other symptoms under control, and help patients and families manage emotional distress.

According to the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, collaboration between physicians and palliative care organizations creates clinical benefits including:

  • Reduced symptom burden
  • Care concordant with patient-family preferences
  • Patient-family professional consensus on the goal of medical care
  • Improved patient and family satisfaction
  • Reduced costs via shortened length of hospital stays and more appropriate treatment

What Our Families Say

On behalf of my family I would like to thank you and the staff of Pikes Peak Hospice for your care and
concern for my father 
and for his family during his stay with you. I would recommend your
organization without hesitation to anyone who might be in need of your services. 

I want to commend all of the professionals that helped my family and my husband.  
You were all so kind and caring to all of us during the hardest time of our lives. You all are angels!  Thank you.

Please applaud the Red Team for caring for my husband and teaching me to care for him. 
You made his last week as comfortable and as pain free as possible and
you cared for me when he passed.  Thank you.
